LOL - Maybe I should be more specific and ask for an easy way. I've got a feeling that the way that it can be done will be nasty.
Apparently with the new markup tables you can enter images in a cell. I found out the functionality while writing this answer.
And the bonus is that it is quite easy, just make a table as you normally would and insert the image description part in the relevant cell.
For example the code:
| Animal | Image | |---|---| | Dog | [![Dog]] | | Cat | [![Cat]] | | Harp Seal | [![Harp seal]]| : https://i.stack.imgur.com/P5j8mt.png : https://i.stack.imgur.com/WN2hrt.png : https://i.stack.imgur.com/sxGXat.png
